    Of course! Good luck!

    I know it's tempting and even the rescue I worked with said that they tend to more or less obsess over and stalk the mamas before they give birth, but if she already doesn't like being picked up then I would try to give her space so she doesn't get unnecessarily stressed. Good luck and I hope you have good news to share in a few weeks

    I'm so happy that everything turned out so well for both Mama and her babies. They are such cuties. Please let us know when your other piggie has her babies.

    Well it wasnít that long and my other guinea pig gave birth to 3 more pups an hour ago. But she still is kind of has a belly but my other guinea pig doesnít. And pet shop worker said that they can give birth twice. I mean like they can give birth to few pups but few days later give birth for the rest of them. And I donít know if thatís true or not bc I canít find anywhere this information.

    Retained pups are a medical emergency requiring an immediate spay.

    She may not have retained pups -- some pigs will just seem larger than others after delivery, and she may just be a different shape and weight than your other pig. You should watch her very carefully to make sure she's eating, drinking and letting the pups nurse. If you see any continued signs of labor, or if she seems in the least bit ill, you should get her to an exotic vet ASAP.

    @K4tr1n4, how is your piggie doing today? Are all of the babies still doing well?

    Thanks so much for the update. I've been thinking of them and hoping everyone was doing well. It must be a little overwhelming for you to start out with just two piggies and now you suddenly have 8 of them. You gained a little family very quickly. I bet they are all adorable.
